Christiansburg Sept. 9th 1850 I hereby certify that I have been in the habit of attending upon Robert Gardner of Christiansburg as a physician for some time past. In my opinion Mr Gardner's health is such now that it would be very imprudent for him to undertake to go to Lexington to which place he has been summoned as a witness in the case of Unis Andrew & al vs Charlton's adm'r & al I was acquainted with the state of health of Mr Gardner last spring when he was summoned to Rockbridge as a witness in the same case and he was then confined to bed & entirely unable to go. The said Robert Gardner is near seventy years of age and has been in bad health Many years. Joseph P Edie Physician in Christiansburg
